BBC films 400 Strictly Come Dancing fans at TV Centre for new BBC One ident
Date: 08.11.2010
Category: BBC One
Nearly 400 fans of Strictly Come Dancing came to BBC Television Centre yesterday to be filmed dancing for a new BBC One ident.

The fans responded to the BBC's invitation to learn a special routine created by Strictly favourite Karen Hardy, and braved the November cold to dance in the iconic doughnut at the centre of Television Centre.

The fans enjoyed a day of behind-the-scenes Strictly experiences, including appearances by series two winner Darren Gough, last year's contestant and former EastEnder Ricky Groves, current season evictees Paul Daniels and Peter Shilton, as well as Strictly dancers Erin Boag, Kristina Rihanoff and Jared Murillo. In an extra special surprise for the fans, Joe Calzaghe came along to dance with Kristina Rihanoff.

Fans queued from early morning to be amongst the first to enter BBC Television Centre, where they also enjoyed backstage tours of the iconic studios, currently celebrating their 50th Anniversary.

The special routine choreographed for the ident by Karen Hardy was made available on the Strictly Come Dancing website and the Strictly Come Dancing pages on Facebook and YouTube, and hundreds practised the routine in advance to be able to dance in perfect coordination for the ident.

A giant crane suspended a camera at 50 metres over the centre of Television Centre to capture the public as they danced around the doughnut. The ident will be premiered on Strictly Come Dancing It Takes Two with a story about "the making of" in the next couple of weeks and then premiere on BBC One on the evening of Saturday 20 November.

The day's activities followed five regional events in Edinburgh, Leeds, Plymouth, Swansea and Norwich where local dance schools taught the Karen Hardy routine to members of the public at BBC Big Screen events. Strictly fans were invited to apply for tickets to the filming of the ident online, with nearly 20,000 applications received.

You're taking the fun out of the whole thing - and everyone knows your point of view.

In what way am I taking the fun out of it?


In the same way as Arlene Phillips. Taking it all far too seriously.

Think this is much improved on the lame mirror ball attempt last year, but shame it will only be ready for semi-finals and not the start of this years run. Rolling Eyes

Presumably will be re-used next year though, certainly looks like they're spending more money than that mirrorball thing last year.

There's a couple more shots of it here. I rather like the lights they used...

Could be very much a BBC ident rather than a Strictly one though considering the location. Not sure how long post-production takes on these things, but could it debut for Children in Need perhaps?

That Vera Lynn film on "It Takes Two" tonight seemed rather out of place. Like it had been produced for "The One Show" and someone had managed to send it to the wrong early-evening live discussion programme.

They have filmed two versions, one with strictly come dancing professionals and one without, so presumably the non pro dancing version will be used around other programming

What happened to that really cheap glitterball ident they made for the show? And I don't get why they don't have them ready for when the series has started.
